Anyone done this and can recommend a suitable Wireless USB Adapter that will work well with TiVo?

I moaned to the disconnection department about the 3 blanket increase in February. They couldn't do anything about the increase, but gave me TiVo for free (negating the monthly subscription and activation fee) and moved the existing V+ box to another room.

Threaten to leave them and you'll be surprised what they will offer you.

30-odd seems a bit excessive for the provision of only one port. I've not hooked my Tivo up yet but I've got the blu-ray player and Apple TV connected to a re-purposed 11g router (set to client bridge mode).

You'd want redundancy for the future though, surely? I don't know anyone who only has one box under their TV.

Not to mention the green benefits of re-using older wireless routers.

Suppose so, one would hope everything will have n wifi going forward

I agree. From a personal perspective, devices connected to the 'g' client bridge seem to hold a more stable throughput than when using their own built-in 'n' wifi.

Still, good luck, Blind. Let us know how you get on and whether networking the Tivo is worth it.

The killer feature that they have in the states is that you can play shows recorded on other tivos on your network..

I thought the last update did this? Not that I have nor want two Tivo's.

I fecking hate some parts of it the suggestions pisses me right off, apart from being mostly pap it takes fecking ages to get shot of the recordings, a right fecking chore when you let them build up, I spend lots of time trying to get shot of the thumbs up.

It has started to record re-runs of shows I had series linked watched and deleted ages ago.

And it is really laggy on TV, compared to my tatty old Sky HD box. I put the lag down to the HD filling up

Oh and it starts to delete shows that you have not watched unless you go in and protect them.

Fast forward on recorded shows is pap too, Sky you get enter the minutes etc, this one leaps all over shop. On demand will not pause for more than ten minutes (guess I should pack up smoking to cure this one).

Of course I would guess a lot of this could be resolved if I RTFM

So any help from the Tivo BBS experts?

If you just press the clear button it deletes whatever is highlighted. Pretty easy really.

I already had both those apps and activating TiVo was as easy as can be. However I had hoped to use the Peanut RC & Keyboard app which works like a dream as a replacement remote control - noticably faster than the actual TiVo handset - but the keyboard function doesn't appear to work at all for me. This is a bit of a downer as it was primarily the ability to input searches using a keyboard rather than the dire screen based system that drove my desire to network the thing in the first place.

Will do a bit more digging when I get a chance in case i've done something wrong.

Regarding taping re-runs , you can amend this in the recording settings. Quick series link defaults to 'new and repeats'. Amend to just 'new' only.

Is this for searches?
